Only slightly jealous.. when I was hunting for my 13 overland I was looking for a white one. There literally wasn't 1 white overland in all of SoCal for sale. LOL. I went with my next choice which i ended up really liking.. the Metallic Steel.

i don't know what you mean by Fast good.. but it's crazy good off road. It climbs like crazy, hardly any tire spin at all on some very steep/sandy slopes. I haven't had it in the mud yet, but it climbs great so far.

Got the jeep today an drove around its a nice ride. Some what reminds me of how a Mercedes benz GL feels like. It's a quick jeep but my daily driver which is a 2010 Toyota tundra 5.7 and it's much faster . Either way I'm happy I have jeep back in my stable of cars
